If, instead, shopping is not your thing, but you are passionate about art and, especially, sculpture, you have an appointment at the Mogan Mall. The artwork of the famous Canarian sculptor Manolo González is waiting for you.
A sculpture full of meaning
ÍCARO7 is the solidarity flight. A large wing composed of seven figures linked to each other and joined for the same cause; the effort to fly together towards the light. A light based on freedom, the light of everybody.
If you are a curious person, we reveal you that this sculpture was created from a lacquered stainless-steel mesh.
Manolo González, the master sculptor
Of Grancanarian heart, this island artist begins in the world of art guided by his artist godparents, photographer Fachico Rojas and his wife, Luisa Hernández. He began his studies at the Central University of Barcelona in order to get to know the world of Fine Arts up close, but he will end up dropping out of school to dedicate himself to be self-taught in plastic. In this process, he always kept in mind all the great masters of sculpture from the most classic to the most contemporary.
When we say that he is one of the most reputable sculptors of the Canary Islands, not only do we say it, but all the successes he has achieved in his profession. In addition, Manolo González is a member of the Royal Canary Academy of Fine Arts, Can de Plata to the Arts of the Cabildo of Gran Canaria and Silver Medal of the Biennial of Contemporary Art of Florence. Therefore, we cannot be prouder to have a work of art that has been created by this artistic eminence.
On the other hand, it has more than 20 public works, 20 private exhibitions and 22 collective exhibitions in places such as Italy, Mexico, Santo Domingo, Miami, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Spain.
